[strick-chure, yoo-ree-thrul] a narrowing of the urethra, often due to scar tissue, that blocks the flow of urine, which can result in overflow incontinence (leaking urine). This can often be treated by surgically removing the scar tissue and stretching the urethra. See also overflow incontinence, urethra.
